HOPE at home

Our virtual programs offer families a unique experience were they can express themselves creatively through a variety of sensory modalities.  An extensive toolkit is mailed to participants as all projects are hands-on.  These activities promote self-reflection, insight and togetherness.

Summer officially starts June 21st!!!  This is the hottest season, where the daylight hours are the longest and the nighttime hours are the shortest.  Living in Florida, we typically play outside all year round but for others it is time to shed those winter clothes and head outside!  Let’s celebrate the season by creating summer inspired activities.  Registration is open.
